49% Favor Gay Marriage, up from 32% in 2003

American voters remain divided on same-sex marriage, according to a Fox News national poll released Thursday.

The new poll shows that 49 percent of voters favor legalizing gay marriage, while 46 percent oppose it. That represents a significant shift since the question was first asked on a Fox poll in 2003. At that time, 32 percent said gays should be allowed to marry legally, and 58 percent were opposed. [cont.]
